In-Country Review in the Translation Process

When you need corporate translations, accuracy checks are important. One of the ways is through in-country reviews. The in-country review, sometimes referred to as a client review or third-party review, is a step in the translation process where the translated files are returned to the client for a review of the translated text. A native speaker, often times living in the region or country where the translations will be used, reviews the translation to be certain that the terminology used is appropriate for that region and that industry. Certain terms may be more common or accurate than others, and the in-country reviewer can verify the translation, while suggesting terms that they think will better describe their product or service.

Medical Devices: Industry-Specific Medical Translation Services

For medical devices to be properly documented, accurate translations are essential. It is also critical to recognize that local differences can be extremely important. For example in the European Union, a medical device must be tagged, and accurate documentation prepared, for different local markets even within an individual EU country. This can also apply to other international destinations. Quality, precise translations are an achievable goal with reliable medical translation services. Selecting a qualified, experienced medical translation service at the beginning of the translation process will ensure that the high expectations of the medical device industry can be achieved — for the manufacturer, the in-country distributor, and the end-user.
